Any way to MP running with the 8.1 release preview? It doesn't run at all for me even in compatibility mode.

Hi Team,
I am in the same boat, please find attached watchdog logs.
If possible would be nice to get mediaportal working again as bugs are better then no mediaportal for me :)
And appears the only way to remove 8.1 currently is to re-install windows, which I would prefer not to do.
Let me know if there is any way I can help, and thanks again.

    Answer is pretty clear in the log files:
    [2013-06-27 21:52:51,182] [Error ] [MPMain ] [ERROR] - *******************************************
    [2013-06-27 21:52:51,199] [Error ] [MPMain ] [ERROR] - * ERROR, OS can't be used for MediaPortal *
    [2013-06-27 21:52:51,199] [Error ] [MPMain ] [ERROR] - *******************************************

    Running is blocked. This would require a code change.

    What's the exact windows version? (Maybe you can run "winver" and capture a screenshot?)
    According to code, only window 8 RTM is supported now. It will require code change as said before...

    Should probably be set to "not supported" instead of "blocked", and @Game_dude should volunteer to QA it ;)

    I guess M$ changed a bunch of stuff in 8.1. I thought 8.1 would have been like a service pack where you could still run previous programs with out any problems.

    it's not that it's necessarily incompatible it's that MP looks at the windows version and says I don't know what this is, I am not even going to try;)[DOUBLEPOST=1372362828][/DOUBLEPOST]mediaportal 1.4.1 ? :p

    You need to check the wiki for TVMosaic, you have recordings as source available once TVM is installed. And of course images and music are part of the NET6 version as for NET4. If you have issues with it further infos would be good.

    Thanks for your reply. In my configuration this setting is set to "no". To avoid misunderstandings, the MP window size changes on screen resolution changes, MP always fulfills the whole screen. Also, the home screen buttons size is adjusted. Only the font size is not adjusted to the new screen resolution.
